and immigration reform. i sound like i am preaching the take time out from the campaign and let us in the media start talking about the issues and informing people about climate change, inform people about the fiscal cliff, about immigration reform and stop the speculation about joe biden or hillary clinton or andrew cuomo or marco rubio. let's pass a law. you cannot talk about it until 2015. host: we will talk about that. good morning. hard to imagine that a guy who is making millions is paying tax. i am a republican. the tax code has to be taken to the smithsonian institute because the lobbyists have ruined this country. all and come should be ordinary income and it should be taxed as such. people get their original deduction, 10% from mortgage interest or wherever they want. everything else is taxed, and to pay down the debt. that is what congress has to do. it is not this loophole or that loophole. it is all the loopholes. it has to be ordinary and that is the only way. healthcare has to be taken off the back of industry. i am sure you have a tax code that gets rid of corporate ta
